City Manager's Message

I am extremely proud to be the City Manager of this vibrant and diverse community.  This City is filled with wonderful people and has an exciting future ahead.  I hope you will take some time to learn about its history, and its many different departments

Whether you are a current or a future resident, a visitor, or an entrepreneur, we have designed this website, and all of our new and improved Social Media outreach, to help you easily find information about our City and to keep you informed of important developments. 

We are constantly working to keep information on this site updated, to add more information about the finances and the inner workings of the City to increase transparency for those who pay for City government, and to look for better ways to stay “connected” to our residents at all times.

You can learn about the State of the City in our 2019 annual report (in English and Spanish), events on Facebook, stay updated on news and announcements by signing up for my monthly newsletter, get immediate information on Twitter, sign up for emergency alerts, view interesting moments on YouTube, and utilize tools such as SeeClickFix, to alert the City to problems that need attention.

We also hope you will get involved in some of the major Planning Department efforts in the City over the course of the next year.  One of our significant efforts in 2017 is a complete re-visioning of Bellingham Square and the Broadway Business Corridor. 

The City Council has set aside of $5 million in bond funds to implement recommendations that come out of the planning effort for what we have deemed Re-Imagining Broadway. We hope you will engage in this effort at public meetings and online.

Chelsea is a city on the move and I invite you to join our community efforts!
